    Really depends on who's ranking it. There is no single "best" college. Some colleges are better at doing different things and may be the best in the world at doing that one thing. Also people have different opinions and value certain aspects of a college with more weight. Also the people rating it tends to be bias toward the school they like more, Russia for example did a ranking where they ranked their's the best in the world. Princeton ranks (or has ranked) theirs the best in the US.

    Here are some rankings:

    It really depends on what you are talking about: undergraduate vs. graduate program, and then also what field of study. There are definitely top tier schools out there that excel in a wide variety of subjects, but there is not one that is considered the best in all subject areas. Rather, schools tend to be know for having strengths in a particular set of fields.

    Ivy League schools are typically thought of as the "best" schools.
